Toy News: New photos of Combiner Wars!

in Generation One, Generations, News

Hasbro has released eighteen new images from their upcoming Generations "Combiner Wars" series! These give us a first look at the figures in new packaging which has a more "premium" feel to it akin to the "Black Series" from "Star Wars". Also check out the collector card art we're getting with the figures! Based off the look of the fantastic artwork from the "Transformers Legends" figures, I'm really keen on cool, painted style artwork being part of the Generations line once again!
